Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ gets first software update

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ gets first Android update
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ update details
One week after the Galaxy Note 5, its sibling receives the first software update as well.

Although Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ share the same hardware and were released simultaneously, they belong to different product lineups. The Note 5 received its first Android update last week, and the S6 Edge+ gets its first update as well, but the delay has been probably caused by the exclusive stylus-related features of the first.

According to SamMobile, firmware update G928GDDU2AOJ5 has been spotted in India. The firmware file has 138.14 MB in size, and it looks like European users of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ got it a few days ago already. Its highlights include battery usage optimization, call stability improvements, as well as enhanced security.

The updates for Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ mentioned above apply to unlocked devices, so those using carrier-branded models may have to wait at least a few days to get their updates, if not weeks. We will probably hear about updates of these devices from US carriers soon, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
